    When I worked at the Emporium in the Summer of 2000, I helped out Dustin Diamond (Screeh from Saved by the Bell). He was looking for The Little Mermaid DVD, but we didn't have it, and Main Street was already closed...so he couldn't go to 20th Century Music across the way. I guess I really didn't help him, did I?

          Mickey 75th Statues

          I know when the 75th statues at DCA some artists came to see their Mickey, including Wayne Brady. One of my pin trading friends saw him in Greetings before I got there and had a nice conversation with him while they were both waiting in line. He was there with his kid.

          I've also heard from CMs about having Britney and Christina (who make it hard because they love to shop and then they have to close down the entire store- which is really hard on Main Street), Johnny Depp (who is a really great dad to his kids), John Stamos (who loves Big Thunder), Carmen Electra and her husband among others. [Things you learn on the Walk in Walt's Footsteps tour.]

          Can you tell I want to work in Guest Relations?

            WOW, this is a GREAT thread. Do any of you have any funny stories about when you met them in the parks. I like seeing who all has been spotted at the parks, but I want to hear some wonderful stories from these meetings!!!!

                My last trip to Disneyland I ran into Barry Williams (Greg Brady) buying food at DCA's Hollywood Backlot.

                  A friend at Autopia told Christina Aguilera "You've got nothin' on Brittany!". Apparently one of Christina's friends/dancers found it very funny!

                    I heard Johnny Depp was there a lot preparing for Black Pearl, I wonder if he'll do the same for Pirates 2.

                      I saw Kobe Bryant while in line for Dumbo. The entire fantasyland stopped everything just to watch the rapist and his family ride the merry-go-round. I seriously don't understand people's fasination with celebrities.

                        I just got done talking to my CM friend and he told me that he saw Hugh Hefner and 5 playmates walking through Frontierland in the MK today. He also said that one of my other CM friends got to speak with Scotty Pippin today at MGM!!!!!

                          This goes back a few years ago, but I still remember it like it was today...

                          The Playmate, Erica Eloziak (sp???) the blonde that also was in the movie Under Seige (she jumped out of the cake). We bumped into each other as we got off of Space Mountain. She apologized and then I realized who she was. As I walked out behind her, I noticed that EVERYONE was checking her out as we made our way back into circulation.

                          We also saw Nicolaus Cage and Lisa Marie (when they were still together) at DCA. Got a quickie pic with him. All I could do was tell the kids that Lisa was Elvis' daughter. They didn't know her otherwise.

                          My daughter spotted the two girls from 8 simple rules and we got their pictures. They were very nice. Also the short pudgy kid from the Disney shows (don't know his name).

                          Over the years, we have seen quite a few famous folks.

                          We are now trained to seek out the plaid dressed CM's walking in the park, they are usually escorting someone famous.

                            When I worked at DL in the '80's, I remember 3 celebrity run-ins. Hugh Hefner with Miss July and Miss August (I remember because it said so across their T-shirts,) said hi to me while working at the turnstile position at Subs; I spoke to Margo Kidder (Lois Lane from the first Superman movie) and her daughter during a nighttime special event party, again at subs; and finally, I had to tell Peter Scolari (Tom Hank's co-star on Bosom buddies) that he had to wait if he wanted to ride in the front seat on Space Mountain. As I write this, I realize this took place 20 years ago. 'Jeez I'm old.

                                this happened last year and i was working in one of the stores in Frontierland. I was walking around the store and I look up and Im looking right at Steven Speilberg (sp?). He came in with his kids and his guest relations host was not with him at the time. I could see that he was shopping around looking for something and i also noticed that he had some people following him around too. so i go up to mr. speilberg and im like hi is there anything i can help you find today?? he looks at me and he was like is there something you can do to keep the people from following us so closely. so i grabbed one of the guys i was working with and him and i followed mr. spielberg around our store until he was done and until his guest relations host came back. mr. speilberg seemed pretty nice and cool.

                                    Duuuuuude....I would give an organ to meet Eddie. He's been my personal hero since I was 13.

                                    Met Shatner once before (was another non-Disney job I had). Nice guy, funny in an aloof sort of way. Not at all the prima donna I was told he was.

                                    I have my own Disney celeb story but it's late. Posted it to the net years and years ago. I'll have to dig it up if its still out there. Maybe tomorrow....

                                    AP'er since 2004. Yup.....I'm one of THEM.

                                      I was actually working Security there at DL when POTC premiere was held there.

                                      I was working the vehicle gate the celebrities were coming in at, and I got to see (and talk to!) quite a few people.

                                      Scott Bakula, Katie Segal, Geoffery Rush, and Oscar De La Hoya's kids, just to name a few!
